I’ve been following the story of Kenny Bartley since 2005 when he brought a gun to Campbell County High School in Tennessee. shot three school employees and killed one. He originally entered into a plea deal that saw him sentenced for 45 years but that plea was thrown out and he was released in 2014.
Since his release he’s had various run ins with the law mostly for domestic abuse against his parents. As part of his probation he was going to live with his psychologist’s family in Virginia. The psychologist’s son died from what is being claimed as a fall down the stairs but he was allegedly alone with Bartley at the time. Bartley has not been charged with a crime in that case as the investigation is still ongoing. Bartley then fled Virginia as there was a misdemeanor warrant out for his arrest in Tennessee.
Now it seems that Bartley may be going back to prison for quite some time as he’s named as a suspect in an armed robbery, which should come as a surprise to absolutely no one. Investigators believe that Bartley was armed with a gun when allegedly robbed a gas station in Anderson County, Tennessee, earlier this morning.
Bartley has been described as…
W/M Age: 23
6’01” 170 Lbs
Numerous Tattoos On Hands & Arms
Anyone having information on Bartley’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Anderson County Sheriff’s Department at 865-457-2414 or call their local law enforcement agency immediately.
I hope he is captured soon without injury or loss of life to anyone. In my opinion Bartley is very dangerous and I could easily see his capture going sideways. I pray to God that he is brought in without incident.
UPDATE: Charges dropped.
